Make Your Mark With QV’s Street Art Competition

MELBOURNE | Street artists of Melbourne, here’s a litte something you might be interested in. QV Melbourne is commissioning a piece of artwork for Artemis Lane between Russell Street at Meat Fish Wine. Currently, it’s just a blank concrete wall and they are looking for something more vibrant.

The winning artist will be awarded a grand prize of $5,000, with all paint supplies and art materials to be provided to complete the artwork, spanning 15 metres in length x 2.1 metres in height. With over 40,000 people a day moving through QV, the winning artist’s work will be given significant exposure.

The “#ColourQV” competition calls for a work that incorporates colour and creativity, has an element of interactivity and considers the surrounding environment, with the wall located in a prominent restaurant precinct.

Entries are open until midnight on Sunday 4 September and limited to Melbourne based artists. Three finalists will be notified by 8 September 2016 and offered a finalist fee of $300 each to complete a sketch of their proposed artwork by 14 September 2016. Once the sketches are complete, a poll will be held via the QV Melbourne Facebook page where Melburnians can weigh in and ultimately choose the winning artwork.

Enter #ColourQV by emailing [email protected] with your portfolio (attachments to be no more than 2MB) and contact details. Entries close at midnight on 4 September 2016.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
